Bible Commentary for Leviticus 22:13

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 22:13


22:12 A stranger - To one of another family, who is no priest. Yet the priest's wife, though of another family, might eat. The reason of which difference is, because the wife passeth into the name, state and privileges of her husband, from whom the family is denominated.

22:14 Unto it - Over and above the principle, and besides the ram to be offered to God, #Lev 5:15|. And shall give unto the priest the holy thing - That is, the worth of it, which the priest was either to take to himself or to offer to God, as the nature of the thing was.

22:15 They - The people shall not profane them, by eating them: or the priests shall not profane them, that is, suffer the people to profane them, without censure and punishment.
